This is honestly kind of a lazy post.
I wanted to show something I got in the mail recently, but I also didn't want to scan or download each image from it, so it's kind of a fanned mess.
I received a full set of the 1986 Provigo Expos Panels from Angus at Dawg Day Cards. He also sent some more Expos Panini stickers from the 90s.
I'm keeping the panels together, but I also kind of want to get the set separated so I can binder them. Though I guess I could get binder sheets for these as well.
Each panel has two cards and a promotional plug. Between ads for products like Frozen Fruit Bars, Peanut Butter, Hygrade meat sticks, Hostess chips, Rougemont Apple juice, Catelli pasta, Maple Leaf weiners, Ultramar/Gulf, Heinz, and Javex.. There's also a coupon for $1 off the price of a 1986 regular season ticket and a contest for $100000 sponsored by Scott Towels..
I wanted to show these for another reason as well.. I've been looking at trying my hand at creating a custom card or two.. The design I think would be easy to replicate and would fit my purposes. If I get past the yapping and get to the creating, I'll keep this place updated on the progress.
The Expos have some really cool oddballs. Nice to see all these panels intact.ReplyDelete
Glad they made it so quickly.ReplyDelete
These are awesome! Even the fruit bar ad card is cool.ReplyDelete
Most of the ads are interesting.. One thing I found funny was on the reverse side, almost all of them had an ad for the card album. Two had the checklist.. And the coupon was printed on both sides..Delete
That would be an excellent design to use for a set of customs.ReplyDelete
I think so too.. I just have to sit down at my desktop at some point to play around with it to see how they turn out. I have a couple ideas..Delete
